Shower Doors - How to Combine Practicality With Style

Shower Doors - How to Combine Practicality With Style

Shower doors come in a variety of different designs, according to the style of a particular bathroom. As well as choosing a door that fits in with the look of your room, how it actually opens is an important consideration. This depends on the layout of the room and the amount of space available. For instance, folding shower doors have to be able to open outwards, to prevent the user becoming trapped inside. There must be sufficient space to do this without hitting any existing bathroom fixtures, such as your sink or cabinets.

For smaller bathrooms, a sliding shower door could make more efficient use of limited space. Sliding or bypass doors can be fitted over a bathtub or to a shower stall. They operate by using rollers to glide along tracks. Although space-saving, because the panels overlap and dirt can get trapped in the tracks, it can be tricky to keep them clean. For better accessibility, trackless shower doors are an option. These accordion style doors have the advantages of no tracks to trip over or keep clean.

  1. I like the look of this bathroom. I don't know if it's the glass, but I like how the flooring and walls outside the shower are different colors than the inside. If it is just the glass, then I like how the glass makes it look that way.
